The upcoming Maruti Suzuki WagonR is likely to launch on January 23 with an LPG option
India’s largest auto manufacturer, Maruti Suzuki, has announced the comeback of the LPG option to the WagonR with the introduction of the new generation model this month. “We are glad and welcome Maruti pushing the LPG variant in one of its most reliable and top-selling car models, the WagonR,” Sayash Gupta, General Director of Indian Auto LPG Coalition commented about this development. It is highly likely that the all-new WagonR will come with 1.0-litre petrol, 1.0-litre petrol CNG, 1.0-litre LPG and even a 1.2-litre gasoline engine option. The motors will retain the transmission options of the outgoing model with a 5-speed manual and 5-speed AMT gearbox.
